We found a cache of old bodhi seeds from the time before the cost of bodhi seeds became so crazy. Most bodhi seeds sold in Nepal today are sanded to shrink them from 16mm to 12mm and although they are still fine quality, it is rare to find 12mm beads unsanded with all their natural beauty. These are natural, unsanded and simply beautiful. Only a few strands available from this years shipment
We carry a wide variety of less expensive bodhi seed beads here
These are quite appealing to the eyes and hands. Each seed is unique and beautiful. Though it was well strung to begin with, I restrung it to add some personal touches. I feel blessed to use this mala.
